How Often to Get 2009 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 2009 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your G55 AMG may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2009 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your G55 AMG’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
